Via the OURS group: there’s a larp (or at least, larp-adjacent production) running as part of the Dunedin Fringe Festival:

Trickster Game 001

GATHER YOUR TEAM FOR AN INTERACTIVE LIVE-ACTION ADVENTURE THROUGH THE MAZE-LIKE FORESTED PATHS OF THE UPPER DUNEDIN BOTANIC GARDEN.

EXPLORE SOLVE UNLOCK

Explore, get lost and unlock new areas in this site-specific mashup of video game mechanics, strange puzzles and quirky character interaction!

YOUR TEAM OF 3-6 will be plunged into a rich fictional world that challenges your collective recall and quick-thinking. Your interactions with the world’s characters are the key to your success: complete missions, solve puzzling side-quests, uncover the secrets and unlock new areas - how you progress is up to you!

But it’s not as simple as it seems. It never is…

There are eight games - two per day on each saturday and Sunday the fringe festival is running for. Tickets are $30, and available via EventBrite. There’s a $10 discount if you sign up to their subscriber / playtest community.
